British luxury SUV manufacturer Land Rover will unveil the new Range Rover SVAutobiography at the 2015 New York International Auto Show which will be exclusively crafted at Special Vehicle Operations’ (SVO) Technical Centre in the UK. The SVAutobiography features exterior design enhancements, an premium leather interior with trim finishes and the option of a 550PS 5.0-litre V8 supercharged engine for the first time. The SVAutobiography is claimed to be the most luxurious and powerful series-production Range Rover in the model’s successful 45-year history.
The SVAutobiography will be available in standard and long wheelbase derivatives For the first time on Range Rover, customers of the 2016 Model Year SVAutobiography are able to specify a unique Duo-tone body colour option. The combination of Santorini Black upper body and nine colour choices for the lower body create true distinction and individualism. The 2016 Model Year vehicle is distinguished with the new Range Rover bonnet lettering and the tailgate is adorned with the new SVAutobiography badging. The front grille is finished in Graphite Atlas and polished chrome.
On the inside, much of the driver’s switchgear, including the start-stop surround and rotary controls, are machined from solid aluminium with knurled details, as are the foot pedals. This detailing continues to both the front and rear centre consoles. New armrest adjusters not only bring a similar level of machined detail, but also make them even easier to use. Rear-seat passenger section receives a chiller compartment and powered deployable tables. New to Range Rover for 2016 Model Year, the SVAutobiography offers the option of a sliding loadspace floor. Made aluminium and a choice of veneer options, the floor extends rearwards ease of use for loading and unloading.
Land Rover’s InControl technologies continue to develop and now offer smartphone connectivity, user convenience and market availability. InControl Remote Premium allows owners to remotely check the fuel level, lock and unlock the doors and flash the lights or sound the horn to help identify the vehicle in crowded car parks, all using a smartphone app.
